From a tropical beach to a traditional church, each wedding location comes with its own unique, lovely characteristics. And what's another way to match the mood and setting of your wedding? With the perfect dress...and train! If you're struggling to decide which train length would be best for you, or if you simply have no idea where to start, we've got the answers! Here’s our Enzoani top tips guide to picking the perfect train length for your big day.
Sweep: The sweep train, also known as a “brush” train, extends up to 1.5 feet from where the gown first hits the floor. This a great choice for outdoor brides who want a little glamour without the worry of too much fabric dragging on the floor. It’s also a lovely choice for indoor brides who want something more simple and not over-the-top. Perfect for destination weddings! A beautiful example of this is Lauren Conrad’s stunning Badgley Mischka gown.

Chapel: A popular length for brides who want a more serious train, but not a lot of fuss. This style gives a very elegant look without being too heavy. Chapel trains extend about 3.5 to 4.5 feet from the waist. Kate Moss’s wedding dress is a perfect example of a Chapel train.
Cathedral: Slightly shorter than the Monarch train (the "Grande Dame" of trains), but still very formal. This train falls about 4.5 to 7.5 feet from the waist. Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress has all the drama of a Cathedral style train.

Monarch: The Monarch, or Royal, train extends a whopping 7.5 feet or more from the waist and often requires assistance from a flower girl or page boys. Princess Diana wore a 25-foot train, while in 2011, Kate Middleton’s train was just under 9-feet long. The world record for the longest train stands at a mind-boggling 8,526 ft 9in!
